       addchstr,  addchnstr, waddchstr, waddchnstr, mvaddchstr, mvaddchnstr, mvwaddchstr, mvwadd-
       chnstr - add a string of characters (and attributes) to a curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int addchstr(const chtype *chstr);
       int addchnstr(const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int waddchstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr);
       int waddchnstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvaddchstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvaddchnstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvwaddchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvwaddchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);

       These routines copy chstr into the window image structure at and after the current  cursor
       position.   The	four routines with n as the last argument copy at most n elements, but no
       more than will fit on the line.	If n=-1 then the whole string is copied, to  the  maximum
       number of characters that will fit on the line.

       The  window  cursor is not advanced, and these routines work faster than waddnstr.  On the
       other hand, they don't perform any kind of checking (such as for the  newline,  backspace,
       or carriage return characters), they don't advance the current cursor position, they don't
       expand other control characters to ^-escapes, and they truncate the string if  it  crosses
       the right margin, rather then wrapping it around to the new line.

       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success (the SVr4 manuals spec-
       ify only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion,	unless	otherwise
       noted in the preceding routine descriptions.

       Note that all routines except waddchnstr may be macros.

       All these entry points are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.
